Hinged elbow braces are intended for athletics and/or recovery after elbow reconstructions. Typically, post surgical elbow braces have the term "post-surgical" in their title or description to help you separate their intended use from those for athletics. Athletic hinged brace models are typically shorter, may or may not have adjustable hinges, and usually have a crossing "X" strapping pattern across the front, crease-side, of your elbow. If you've dislocated your elbow previously or need added support for football, these would offer substantial protection. If you've had or are going to have an elbow procedure whereby your physicians wants you to have a brace that controls the flexion (bending) and extension (straightening) range of motion then consider more of a post -op design with or without a forearm bar to control supination/pronation (palm to palm down forearm motion).
